Family holidays in Botswana

Best family safari holidays in Botswana

What was regarded unusual ten years ago, is now becoming more and more popular: at a suitable camp, family safari holidays in Botswana can provide you and your children with an outstanding wildlife experience. Consider booking a private guide to get the most out of your family safari holidays in Botswana!

It is true that a rather exclusive make up, a staid atmosphere and safety issues like game risks, high walkways and unguarded pools still make a lot of camps in Botswana not suitable for family safari holidays. That said, some smaller lodges and (mobile) safari camps are more flexible, e.g. concerning meal times and children's dietary requests, and so cater well to families with children.

Furthermore there are a couple of accommodation options that offer slightly separated family suites or that are booked on an exclusive-use basis.

Whichever option you choose, parents will often need to book a private vehicle and guide if they want to safari together with their children. This may sound like a rather inconvenient requirement - however, it can significantly enhance your family safari experience in Botswana. A private 4WD and your own guide will allow you to set your own schedule and adapt your safari to the age, interests and wishes of your children.
